Overall, a total of 47 countries will be participating in the Overwatch World Cup 2019, with only 10 of those from Asia. Out of those 10 Asian countries, only 4 are from Southeast Asia, including Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, and the Philippines.

Thailand remains the most successful Southeast Asian Overwatch team to date, as they were the only team from the region to make it into the top 24 teams of last year’s Overwatch World Cup 2018. That’s not even mentioning the fact that one of the four Overwatch World Cup 2018 qualifiers was held in Bangkok, Thailand.

What’s Next In The Road To Overwatch World Cup 2019?

Now that Phase 2 of the Overwatch World Cup 2019 program is officially over, Phase 3 will be starting soon, with player selection to commence. All teams from all countries will have from 13 June to 14 July 2019 to hold player tryouts and craft their respective team rosters.

Up to 12 players maximum will be allowed for one team, which Blizzard will have to verify and approve beforehand. Each country’s committee will then select and confirm the final 7 players and committee members, who will travel to the live event at BlizzCon 2019.

Blizzcon 2019 is scheduled to take place at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, California, United States, from 1 November to 2 November 2019.

Here’s the format for the final Overwatch World Cup 2019 tournament at Blizzcon 2019:

  • Preliminary Rounds: A single-elimination, seeded bracket based on the national rankings. The top five countries will have automatic byes to the Group Stage and all other countries will compete for the final five Group Stage placements.
  • Group Stage: The 10 remaining teams will be seeded into two groups of five teams each. Within each group, teams will play round-robin against all other teams in their group. The top team from each group will advance directly to the Playoff Semifinals. The second- and third-ranked teams from each group will advance to the Playoff Quarterfinals.
  • Playoffs: The top six teams will complete a single-elimination bracket to award the Gold and Silver Medals. A run-off match will take place between the two losing teams from the Semifinals to award the Bronze Medal.
